President Joe Biden made headlines again recently when he spoke at “hell” at the National Prayer Breakfast.

Speaking to lawmakers, Biden expressed his hope that Americans would feel that each person is “precious” in God’s eyes and that our “best days are ahead of us.” He went on to say that he thought “everyone deserves a fair shot” and that America should never leave anyone behind. Additionally, he expressed his disapproval of the growing antisemitism in the US, saying that the country should “give hate no safe harbor.”

“My prayer, my, my hope is we continue to believe our best days are ahead of us, and as a nation, we continue to believe in honesty, decency, dignity, and, and, and respect,” Biden began, tripping over his own words.

“We see each other not as enemies but as fellow human beings, each made the image of God, each precious in his sight. We leave no one behind. And we believe everyone deserves a fair shot. We give hate no safe harbor. Together, we believe in America. That’s my prayer, to remember who we are. We’re the United States of America. There’s nothing, and I mean this sincerely, nothing beyond our capacity if we act together,” Biden continued.

He added, “We’re the only nation in the world that’s come out of every crisis stronger than we went in when we act together. I pray for all of you. In my church, we’ve taken the 22nd Psalm and turned it into him. It says, ‘He will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the Sun. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand. That’s sincerely my prayer to all of you. We have really tough, tough differences. We really go out one another. But remember — let’s remember who the hell we — who we are. We are the United States of America. It is all about dignity and respect. So let’s keep practicing. Thank you for having me. It’s good to be back.”

A new NBC News survey is horrendous news for Biden as his re-election campaign is underway.

According to the poll, which was released Sunday morning, Biden’s approval is at an all-time low of just 37 percent, leading a Democratic pollster to comment that the “damning” results indicate a “presidency in peril.”

Per Newsmax, citing the survey:

Former President Donald Trump not only leads Biden by 5 points (47%-42%) in the national poll, but he leads by:

–23 points on mental and physical health to be president (46%-23%).

–22 points on handling the economy (55%-33%).

–21 points on dealing with crime and violence (50%-29%)

–16 points on being competent and effective (48%-32%)

–11 points on improving America’s standing in the world (47%-36%)

–35 points on securing the southern border (57%-22%).

The ongoing illegal immigration crisis has become the No. 1 issue for most GOP primary voters, according to the report, though Democrats are increasingly fed up with Biden’s lax border enforcement policies as more migrants are shipped to major cities.

“What is most concerning is the erosion of Biden’s standing against Trump compared to four years ago,” Democrat pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates said.

“On every measure compared to 2020, Biden has declined. Most damningly, the belief that Biden is more likely to be up to the job—the chief tenet of the Biden candidacy—has evaporated,” Horwitt continued.

The current numbers appear favorable for Trump and “difficult” for the incumbent as they enter the core of the 2024 primary season, Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies offered.

“It is hard to imagine a more difficult set of numbers before a reelection,” McInturff told NBC News.

With 73% of registered voters expressing the belief that the U.S. is on the wrong track under Biden, the only potential positive aspect for the current president and Howitt is that there is still time to reverse these numbers.

“Biden can take solace in knowing that we are in January and not October 2024,” Howitt added. “At this stage in prior cycles, attitudes can change.”

Biden supporters might need to pin their hopes on a conviction of Trump in one of the four indictments he faces. In the scenario where Trump is convicted of a felony, Biden manages to secure a 2-point lead over Trump, although this still falls within the statistical margin of error, making it a competitive race.

The pollsters have noted a steady increase in Trump’s support on various issues, including:

–Border: Trump’s lead increased from 16 points in September 2020 to 35 points in January 2024.

–Economy: Trump expanded his 7-point lead in October 2020 to 22 points today.

–Crime and violence: Trump turned a 4-point deficit during the 2020 riots into a 21-point lead today, marking a 25-point swing.

–Competence and effectiveness: Trump reversed a 9-point deficit in June 2020 to a 16-point lead today, another 25-point swing.

–Mental and physical health for the presidency: Trump transformed a 1-point deficit in October 2020, when he was hospitalized with COVID-19, into a 23-point lead today.

The survey is also the latest to show Biden losing ground with younger voters who have traditionally gone for Democrats.

“A major through line in what ails Biden most are his travails with younger voters,” Horwitt noted, per Newsmax.
